Diversity Equity and Inclusion

The UC Health Pharmacy Residency Program is committed to not only diversity within our residency program but also fostering an inclusive environment. We have the honor of providing care to a diverse patient population (based on race, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability status, etc.) We know and understand that it is important that patients have providers that look like them and that the entire healthcare team is equipped with the cultural humility needed to provide top quality care based on individual needs.

As such, the University of Cincinnati Medical Center Residency Advisory Committee created a position dedicated to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion (DEI) and Community Engagement efforts. This position is broadly responsible for the following:

  • Cultural humility
  • Residency recruitment
  • Community engagement

In 2021, the UCMC Clinical Pharmacist group was selected by the UC Health DEI Office to participate as Early Adopters for eLearning modules related to these topics. This allowed our group to set a foundation on topics such as regarding diversity, inclusion, implicit bias and microaggressions through interactive online modules followed by in-person debrief sessions as an intact group.

The focus on DEI efforts within the residency programs aligns with UC Health Strategic Framework (Performance and Culture, Research and Education, Growth and Access, Community Health) and our PRIIDE values. We are partnering with our colleagues at University of Cincinnati College of Pharmacy and College of Medicine to tackle these difficult topics to continue to grow so that we can provide the best care possible to our patients.
